Ahead of the Pack

A Health Coordinator

As a part of our holistic approach to child care, our health coordinator educates and supports families around child-specific health issues. We're dedicated to maintaining vision and hearing screenings, well-child visits, immunizations and allergy records.


Every Child, No Matter What

When necessary, we provide intervention services for children with special health care needs, mental health concerns, disabilities, or developmental delays.

We have never expelled or refused service to a child because of special health care needs, mental health concerns, disabilities or developmental delays.

If a child is falling behind, a teacher will quickly notifiy the child's parents to come up with a family-centered plan to help the child back on track.
